What Can Stunt Kiteboarding Equipment Demand Growth to Some Extent?

“High Cost Factor and Dangers Associated with Kiteboarding Hampering Demand Growth”

Kiteboarding is considered a risky sports activity. A large number of incidents of injuries and drowning during kiteboarding have been observed, thereby hampering the adoption of kiteboarding equipment.

Increasing changes in climate and the resulting impact is also likely to hinder growth of the market. Kiteboarding is also a costly affair. Consumers have to shell out hefty amounts of money for purchasing safety equipment. This particular factor is restraining people from opting for kiteboarding, which is naturally hindering the growth of the global market.

“U.S. Market Benefitted by Large Number of Kiteboarding Equipment Manufacturers”

The market for kiteboarding equipment in the U.S. is anticipated to rise at a CAGR of 16% over the forecast period due to a number of famous kiteboarding competitions and champions in the country, such as the Kite Foil National Championship and Formula Kite World Championship.
